sheltered basket

A “contained” creation with hidden
details begging to be explored.


Fill a tray with floral foam, leav-
ing a slight gap at the edges.
Insert salal leaves vertically in
the gap around the perimeter of
the foam. Fill the center with a
low base of Hydrangeas, honey
myrtle and Pittosporum.

Position eight to 10 spray
chrysanthemums at a level
slightly above the greens and
Hydrangeas, so they appear to
be “growing.” Tuck three wood-
en eggs into the florid base.

Arranged within a dome-shaped structure of grasses
and bark-covered wire, this fresh mix of blossoms, with
wooden eggs tucked in, reminds of an Easter basket with
a modern twist. Inside the vaulted framework, a low
mass composition invites extended viewing, to discover
the treasures within. sf
